Happy Birthday Robin Williams

tags: , , ,
Yesterday was Robin Williams’ 57th birthday, so I have dug up a video of him performing at the Met, back when he was still funny. There is some not safe for work language in this performance, so be sure to not share this video with your boss. Williams talks about alcohol and marijuana a lot in this video. [7:59]


About GrrlScientist

grrlscientist is the pseudonym of an evolutionary biologist and ornithologist who writes about evolution, ethology, and ecology, especially in birds. After earning a degree in microbiology (thesis focus: virology) and working at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, she earned her PhD in zoology from the University of Washington in Seattle, where she studied the molecular correlates of testosterone and behaviour in white-crowned sparrows. She then worked a Chapman Postdoctoral Fellow at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City, where she studied the speciation and distribution of lories and other parrots throughout the South Pacific Islands. A discarded scientist, she returned to her roots: writing. Formerly hosted by The Guardian (UK), she now writes about science for Forbes and for the non-profit think tank, the Evolution Institute and she writes podcasts for BirdNote Radio. An avid lifelong birder and aviculturist, she lives with a flock of songbirds and parrots somewhere in Germany.

    I had this video for years until someone borrowed it and never returned it. Still one of his best performances, especially the part about baby ca-ca, which I totally agreed with (and found even funnier) the second I became a parent.
    Shamefully, its not available on DVD (although there is a CD available). However, a search on Google shows it to be available on torrent…
    Another classic, but with a bird theme – Bill Bailey’s ‘The Owl Song’

    (from his Bewilderness DVD).
